Legislative 2022. Manuel Bompard is largely leading in the 4th District of Bouches-duRhone

It was a gold constituency. Jean-Luc Melenchon received 59.9% of vote in 2005, and 54.4% in April last year in the presidential election. Unsurprisingly, Manuel Bompard, who inherits the 4th Bouches-du-Rhone constituency where the Insoumis leader is not running for re-election this Sunday, collected 56.04%.

Jean-Luc Melenchon's director of presidential campaign, who is "one of most eminent figures in the new generation", according to the latter, is ahead of Najat Akodad, candidate for Ensemble! (14.88%), with whom he will be battling next Sunday.

Defeated in Toulouse in the 9th constituency in Haute-Garonne five years ago by a candidate La Republique en Marche. The one who was elected MEP in 2019, is now in a favorable ballot to exact his revenge. During a Thursday towing operation, he said that there is no election that can be won in advance.

The 36-year-old who led negotiations for La France Insoumise (Nupes) in the context the creation of the New Popular Ecological and Social Union is more popular than ever to be the deputy of the 1st and 2nd arrondissements of Marseille as well as a part of the 5th and sixth arrondissements.

Manuel Bompard faces a human challenge in this constituency, which was a stronghold of communism until the 1990s. There is a slightly lower proportion of residents in the district who claim they have a job, or are searching for one, than there is nationally (40.5% as compared to 46.7% across France).

According to INSEE, 43% of the population live below the poverty line. Three times higher than the national (14.5%). In this area, the Noailles district was where the two buildings on rue d'Aubagne fell in 2018. Eight people died in 2018 after the tragedy that occurred. It also highlighted the poor sanitation of the homes.
